22 youths get jobs after drug rehabilitation

Jalandhar, October 15

It takes long for a drug addict to shun drugs and in many cases, addicts never get back to their normal lives. Giving out a positive picture in society, the efforts of the Kapurthala district administration have borne fruit with 22 drugs rehabilitated youths getting jobs and finding place in training courses in a mega job fair. Of them, 13 selected candidates are girls.

The 6th mega job fair, held in Punjab recently, was special for Kapurthala, where 22 former drug addicts were selected. The candidates who are former drugs addicts and were rehabilitated in different OOAT clinics in the district were called in District Bureau of Employment and Enterprises (DBEE), Kapurthala, for counselling and a session on how to face an interview. Kapurthala DC Deepti Uppal said the aim was to bring drug rehabilitated candidates into the mainstream. — TNS
